PAL:Repaint (Society for the Rehabilitation of Dark Angels)

Postby blackfly » Fri Jan 06, 2017 11:47 pm

Another goofy idea that came from the shed.

In discussing PAL:Old & Mouldy, folks were talking about the first miniatures the purchased / painted, and a number of us realized that the Dark Angels Captain (070268/5)was at or near the beginning of many of our forrays into painting / gaming.

Image

A couple of us agreed to take before photos of the original work, and then strip and repaint them. Personally, I'm not normally one that would ever bother with a repaint, but as a celebration of synchronicity, I think it'd be fun to give it a go.

This PAL then, is an ongoing invitation to indulge in, and then destroy, nostalgia.

Find one of your old paint jobs.
Post a picture.
Strip it.
Repaint it.

If you happen to have the DA Captain and want to join in on that level as well, I think it'd be amusing if we get even more. It would also be a nifty homage to the original PAL, which was based around all of us painting the same figure. But, any figure is welcome.

No deadline, We'll just leave this as an ongoing PAL in the style of the Meryl Tank-a-thon.

GET TO IT!

We'll let you off on this occasion, take a photo of the stripped version. We'll just imagine it as being very badly painted from days of yonder. Which probably means about as well painted as mine are now :oops:

I'll try and dig mine out tomorrow.

Yeah kind of have to agree with mcfonz that even your "bad" paint jobs are stuff we mere mortals can only dream of ;)

No Dark Angels for me and the first minis I painted were a night goblin command group that has long since been repainted (only slightly less badly) but no idea which they are. However I present for your giggles is a snotling pump wagon which was one of the first bits I bought.

Those are some pretty sweet red wheels soldado! :)

Captain is off for a good long soak to see if those enamels I used can be defeated:

Ha, well thank you :D

Well here he is. I think I'll do him on a little plinth rather than standard slotta though.

Contribootin:

I have one for cutting (I fancied have a really brutal sword resting upright on the shoulder) and one for painting as jes intended.

Will probably do the conversion one (with a different sword, I stalled cause I didn't like that one). Might also be quite late with this.

What a superb game this is and will become, my prediction was weak and we will be many more.

amazingly its still complete and nothings broken off after 20 years of being bumped around in a box with no padding. Its even still got the original mould lines and extra flash I didnt clean off back then

OK so I spent a bit of time on him before work (my better half left super early so I was awake in good time :D)

I have all of the colours blocked in and just about all of the shading done (I might add more black to the sword, not sure).
I have also highlighted the black, up to about 2/3 of the way, then washed back again. I will then reapply a cool grey and a white hotspot.
I did a similar thing with the parchment - Rakarth Flesh, then mixed in some Pallid Wych Flesh, then washed over with sepia:

Not bad for a fortnight's soak, but plenty of gunk left in the nooks and crannies.

Think I'll dunk him one more time and see if I can improve it, but I'm keeping expectations low. Thats ~25years of petrification, and some of it enamels to boot, so I'm presuming I'll likely be painting over some ruined details when I finally get to it.

Ok so I skipped a couple of steps and... Finished him.

I really couldn't get a decent pic on my phone, this is about the least blurry pic of the shoulder pad I got...

And I thought it would be nice to snap the old and new versions together...
